VLADIKAVKAZ, February 17. /TASS/. The erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey became best-seller in one of the largest book stores in the Russian republic of North Ossetia after the film based on the book was banned in Vladikavkaz, the republic’s capital, and several other North Caucasian regions.
The best-seller list was published on the website of the book store Knigi (Books). Along with Fifty Shades of Grey, a controversial novel Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov made it on the list.
Two cinema theaters in Vladikavkaz cancelled screening of Fifty Shades of Grey under pressure from the general public. The republic’s Civic Chamber and Internet users called for cancelling the screening of the erotic film on the territory of North Ossetia.
Families suggested an alternative to a Hollywood movie on February 14, St. Valentine’s Day. They organized a campaign "50 Shades of Green" and planted dozens of fir trees.
